What, when, where and who
This series has a very interesting theme, and it is about how to fit your job. Everyday people facing the challenges to find a good job that fits into you, but how about to find yourself that fits the job? May be you will get a better results by thinking it differently.

The main character Salina is a very strict person, who contributed too much for her company, but her boss did not appreciate that, Led resigned the job and begin to find all different kinds of jobs. Because the fact that she is fat and over 40, it is very hard for her to get a job even though she is highly educated, but she did not gave up, finally, she is able to open up her own restaurant business

Fannie (Margaret), Rain (Bobo) and Annie (Crazy Cat) are three best friends and they all like cats! Fannie and Rain lost their jobs because their company decided to cut off expenses by cutting off their department. Annie is an accountant, no wonder she is so crazy about spending money.

Basically, it is about people who lost their jobs and looking for a new beginning as well as learning to fit into their job, discovering their talents, etc

THE FACTORS
- Love Factor
Annie Man
She is cute, also really careful to spent her money, she will go crazy if her money is gone. She is too strict and not so confident at her boyfriend (Kevin), that's why they broke up, poor girl... But, I like the way she is crazy, very cute!

Cheung Chung Kei
His character So Man makes the series whole lot more enjoyable, very funny character, very good acting. I loved the way he speaks because it takes forever for him to "squeeze" one sentence out of his mouth! He gets better towards the end, but I still love the way he speaks!

All the couples who ending up together ~.~
Let's begin with So Man (Cheung Kei) and Margaret (Fannie), I guess I like this couple a lot because of the way So Man acts around Margaret, they did not pair up until the very last episode, so hang in there.

Annie and Kevin are great, too. They do look cute together because they are both cute! I loved the way they are againsting each other at the beginning and learn to accept each other at the end. They did break up once, but don't worry, they will ending up together

Rain and Fat De is very funny as well even though Fat De does not fit with Rain Al at all! But, you will like the way Fat De did everything for Rain and asks nothing for return, great guy!

The songs composed by Cheung King Kei's character
I love all the songs he did, did Cheung King Kei sang all those? They are very awesome! Especially the one he did for his father to say he was sorry. Also, the one he composed to hint Annie that he loves her, very romantic!

FAVORITES
- Cast
Cheung Chung Kei
This guy is great! I never see him acting before, this is the first time I saw him on screen, and his acting skills were great! He acts really dummy, slow, reserved and sometimes stupid. His ex-girlfriend is horrible, who asks too much of So Man, but he just kept letting her do whatever she wants, after a while, he finally realized his ex-girlfriend does not treat him as a boyfriend, so he broke up with her (good job!) and later he falling love with Fannie by pretending to date her ~.~

- Character
So Man
This character is really funny because he speaks really slow!

Annie Man as the crazy cat
Her biggest concern is how to save money! Everytime she lost some money, she went totally nuts!

- Couple
So Man and Margaret
They will not pair up until the very last episode, however you will love the way So Man treats Margaret

- Scene
Here comes the LONG list:
1. Everytime So Man tries to speak
2. Everytime Fannie, Annie and Rain are together
3. When Tim kei sang the song for Bobo and Sean, the lyrics is about a girl asking a guy to be her girlfriend. But, Kevin has no feelings towards Rain, it was really funny
4. When So Man's father tries to know everything about Fannie
5. Everytime Annie and Kevin are together, however they did break up...
6. When Salina and Fannie are together looking for a place to open up the business, it's pretty interesting, especially for those who are majoring in business
7. When So Man and Fannie are pretending to date, I loved the way So Man tries to get Fennie's attention because he is actually in love with Fannie ~.~
8. When Bobo realized she was pregnant with Fat De's child
9. When So Man and Fannie are watching a movie in the theater, very funny!

 

LEAST FAVORITES
- Character
So Man's ex-girlfriend
She does not treat So Man as a boyfriend, she uses him to compare with others! Horrible girl!

 

COMMENTS
This is a great series, very enjoyable, very entertaining, great casts! I think everybody did a good job in it. 200 times better than "A Stamp of Love". If you are in a jobless mood, you need to see this series! You will love it because it is more than just funny, it has a lot other issues related to it.
